About the recipe

Fantasy fudge, also known as marshmallow creme fudge or chocolate marshmallow fudge, is a delicious melt-in-mouth treat specially prepared during the Christmas holiday as a gift to your loved ones or to be served as after-meal bites in mini cupcake liners.

This fantasy fudge recipe is no bake, prepared using sweetened condensed milk, chocolate, and marshmallow fluff (cream). We have added toasted nuts, Oreos, and chocolate chunks to make it more festive.

I have not used evaporated milk or a candy thermometer. I have used homemade fluff instead of store-bought (e.g.,Kraft jet-puffed marshmallow creme) marshmallow fluff.

How to make the best fantasy fudge at home?

Line your 9-inch by 9-inch baking pan with parchment paper.

In a glass bowl, add condensed milk and chocolate. In a large pot over medium-high heat, add 2 inches of water and bring it to a boil. Place the glass bowl over the pot to mimic a double boiler. Stir using a whisk or spatula until the chocolate melts and achieves a smooth and silky consistency.Check out the video here.

To this, add roasted nuts and crushed oreos, and mix. Finally, add marshmallow fluff (check tip) and mix until well combined.

Pour this mixture into the prepared baking pan and top it with more nuts, oreos, and chocolate if needed.

Keep it in the refrigerator for 2 hours or until it is completely set. Using a sharp knife, cut them into pieces of the desired shape and size. You can also cut them into bite-size treats and serve them in cupcake liners at your Christmas or Thanksgiving party.

Pro Tip

How much fluff to add is an individual choice. If you want the fudge to have a more robust marshmallow flavor, add up to ¾ cup of fluff to the recipe. But remember, your fudge will be softer and gooey, like the one you see in the picture. It is super addictive. But if you want a firmer fudge, reduce the fluff to ⅓ cup. I generally add more fluff and make it a little different, as all other fudge I prepare for my dessert platter will be firmer.

Fantasy fudge recipe presented here is a quick and easy recipe mainly because of the addition of condensed milk (e.g., Milkmaid). Do not substitute it with evaporated milk alone or regular milk. Your fudge will not set.

Can you make fantasy fudge in the microwave?

Yes. You can make this recipe in less than 5 minutes with the microwave. Instead of the double boiler method, heat chocolate and condensed milk in the microwave for 90 seconds, stirring at every 15-second interval until the chocolate has melted completely. All other steps are the same. Mix with fluff, nuts, oreos, and set.

How to store fantasy fudge?

You can store them in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 2 weeks. To prevent them from sticking, separate the fudge pieces with parchment paper or wax paper.

You can also freeze this fudge for up to 2 months. Wrap it nicely with parchment paper and store it in an airtight container to prevent the formation of any ice crystals. Thaw in the refrigerator overnight before serving.

Variations / Substitutions

You can use white chocolate or dark chocolate instead of regular milk chocolate.

Love peanut butter? Then add it to the recipe to make peanut butter fantasy fudge.

I have added toasted nuts, which are my family's favorite. You can add pecans, cashews, raisins, cranberries, or any other nuts and dry fruits of your choice.

Marshmallow fan? Add 1 cup of mini marshmallows to the recipe if desired. Make sure you chill them so that it doesn't melt when you add them to the melted chocolate mixture.
